Questions to ask your Wedding Photographer!
Our wedding photography style is documentary. It’s a candid approach to capturing people in their environment, naturally. We pride ourselves on making people feel comfortable. Whether we are directing a big family portrait or hiding behind a tree to capture Aunt Polly’s contagious laughter, we’ll be there capturing natural candid images.
Kellie and Lindsay own and operate Live Happy Studio. We do everything from client meetings, shooting both wedding photography and videography, editing, blogging, wedding product design, and anything else we can! We do all of this to make sure customer service is top notch. When clients who book photography and videography on the same day, our excellent video team will be there alongside us to keep things consistent, and keep the smiles going.
We know you can’t wait to share your wedding photography, and neither can we! That’s why we have a 2 week turn-around time. No need to wait months, your images will be ready for you by the time you’re back from your honeymoon!
We have plenty of suggestions from pretty settings, stunning compositions, and fun things for you to do! We love natural photography, so we try to suggest things that will make you feel comfortable, instead of telling you to point your toe this way, your arm that way, then spin your head around backwards. We want you to be comfortable and it’s part of our job to make that happen and this shows in your wedding images, no stiff poses, just happy faces. The key to this is to not overthink it, just enjoy the day!
That’s entirely up to you! We love working together with our couples and all of their ideas! A lot of clients have a few fun images they have seen online that they may want to recreate, or maybe some fun new ideas of their own! We also have a bunch of fun things to do if you want to keep it easy and leave it to us! During the family portrait session, we have a mental list that we work through to make sure we capture everyone there. If you have a specific list of family shots, or just a couple of unusual ones that we may not think of (like uncle Bob with his full family of Chihuahua’s) let us know and we’ll add that in there too!
We use the new extra fancy mirrorless Canon cameras. More specifically we use Canon R5’s. We combine this fancy camera with the best lenses you can get, and an off camera lighting setup. We also have backup cameras, and backups for our back-ups 🙂
